Have a Seat and Diaper Cake

It's been a very busy day.  I did manage to get most of what was on my to do list for today done.  My first project I have to share is a diaper cake I made.  I made this cake for my mom who is co-hosting a baby shower this weekend.  This cake is literally the size of a small wedding cake and stands 22 inches high.  I use a whole box and half of another small package of Pampers.  The secret to a full and tall cake is toilet paper!!  Yes, I use 3 rolls of toilet paper as a base and filler in the middle of the cake.  You simply build around the rolls.  I used the little bird from the Cheep Talk stamp set and added a button  to the accordion flower.  I also added a rhinestone on his eye so you could see it a little better on the top of the cake.  I almost forgot to mention that the letter A on top the cake stands for Avery, the baby's name.  I'm sure I didn't spell that right.  lol  The colors are Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, So Saffron and Whisper White.

My next project is a birthday card I made and is a very simple card.  I used the Have a Seat stamp set.  I love how this stamp set looks so antique.  I added an Antique Brad to it to keep the antique theme.  The phrase is from the A word for you stamp set.  Real Espresso, More Mustard and Very Vanilla are the colors I used.

Well, I hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.  Take Care.
